Summer is upon us once again. For the carefree globetrotting woman, it’s time to start thinking of stylish and travel-worthy outfits that are also comfortable for hot summer days. What better way to get this than through a little bit of boho chic?
Starting the 5th of May, JetBlue, the New York City based airline, has connected Nashville and Boston with two flights a day.

Celebrating the launch, team StreetTrotter was on the inaugural flight and has a sneak peek of what went on aboard.
Armenia is an ideal place for having a pleasant holiday in the lap of nature. Clean fresh air, […]
Before our Iceland trip, I heard that the winter months were not the best time to travel to Iceland because of the short daytime, the capricious weather, and the desolation. So we did not expect to get much out of our trip, the main thing that drove us there was to see the aurora (the Northern lights).
Living in Boston has opened a lot of different cultural doors for me. A city rich with some of the best universities in the States and a rooted corporate culture, naturally attracts a lot of xpats from all over the world, contributing to the city’s deep ethnic mosaic. Recently I visited the Boston Chinatown with a couple of my Chinese friends, to celebrate their traditional Chinese new year, without having any idea of what will I end up experiencing. But the moment I stepped outside the China gate, I could hear gongs making music, firecrackers bursting on the streets, and lions dancing everywhere surrounded by a huge cheering crowd…
While the rest of the United States gets prepared for the coming spring, fearsome winds and temperatures hitting ‘twenty degrees celsius’ below zero are still lingering here, a place in the true north, Alaska. About one-third of Alaska lies within the Arctic Circle. The destination provides opportunities of unique tourism and exploration, like Arctic sightseeing and the once in a lifetime, Aurora Borealis (Northern lights) watching.
Its once again time to celebrate the Women’s Day of 2016, and I have been thinking of who should I be wishing today. And what might seem to you as an odd choice – I deeply wanted to wish my father and my husband on this occasion, with a handwritten and heartfelt ‘thank you’ note. I will tell you why.
As much as I loved to travel, I needed a good career, a good salary and a good stable lifestyle equally. I like the idea of being a good professional, with a kickass package, but that means it also requires a fair amount of billable work hours and uncompromised commitment. I cant be on the road anymore and live like a nomad, because no matter who tells you what, its not feasible in the long run. Travel cannot provide you a living. And lets accept it, I can not always be frugal about my travel choices. I need to earn to support the life of my dreams. And this is when the confusion started and the irritation seeped in. I didn’t know if I was failing at my passion, or was I just doing it wrong? Or was everyone around me overdoing it. And overrating it.
Our tagline has been ‘nature is enough’ – we hope this will become a reminder to slow down and simplify. Think of spring time – when people like to ‘spring clean’ – it’s cathartic! You’re purging a bunch of stuff you don’t need and taking good care of what you want to keep and it feels really good when you’re done – like things have been set right again. This is how we define luxury – it’s almost synonymous with a sense of relief and accomplishment.
New year followed soon after the still fresh, first snowfall of Boston, 2015. It was cheerful as always, and glittering like every year, but it all still felt new to us. This was our first New year eve in Boston city, and I can’t sound enough surprised at how lively it was, with families, children, youngsters, couples, and friends, all strolling through the singing and dancing streets.
For this year’s Christmas weekend, we decided to take a short road trip to Rhode Island, from Boston. A friend of ours highly recommended NYLO, and Expedia had some great rates to offer. Instantly, we took up the deal, and went ahead to pack and hit the road. Reaching Warwick, and right after checking-in into the hotel, we knew this one would end up in a stay to remember.
Its two days left to Christmas, and the jingles are playing all around the city! Christmas trees are glittering with lights, and Santa’s are waving on the streets, while the beautiful wreaths are welcoming people at the doors. This winter, bringing in a bit of DIY freshness into our house, I made my own Christmas wreath, wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from team StreetTrotter!
#Christmas2015 is just around the corner, and its time for christmas trees, wreaths and beautiful Christmas bouquets. The shops are full of such pretty vase arrangements, but nothing can make you feel more festive, than making your own Christmas DIY!
It seems unreal that Mozambique is often overlooked when it comes to tourism in Africa. And we are all guilty for that. Start from yourself and ask: “Would you visit Mozambique?” No one will give you a sure “Yes” on that. By getting just a bit deeper into the magic of this country, we can see just how captivating it all can be…
Like every other girl, I grew up believing in fairy tales. My childhood was filled with dreamy characters – prince and princesses, magicians and knights, witches and monsters, goblins and dwarfs. The world was not made of skyscrapers and busy cities, but was built into one magnificent castle, packed in a musical snow globe. And the only question I always asked secretly was, “What if, someday it all came true?” And last night, it really did.
I cant stop to think of airports, trains and flights, which will be filled with excited faces, spreading love all around. Parents, friends, siblings, and lovers waiting to be hugged and longingly loved.

Each of these short love stories, made me smile today, and reassured me, that we have not really lost it all, and never will. Because love, comes at the strangest of times, in the strangest of ways and with the strangest of people…
